BE PRAISED O LORD
RLS:  LIVING STONES SERIES
Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples.”  40  He said in reply, “I tell you, if they keep silent, the stones will cry out!”

 WHAT IS OCEAN JASPER?
 Jasper is a category unto itself in the world of stones.  It is a type of quartz but jasper is different as is made up of little quartz crystals and the way they are layered and joined together creates the design. Much of the design depends on the way it is cut by the lapidarist as each may carry a multitude of options.  Some names depend on origin and names tend to overlap! The ones used here are smooth on one side and show their natural texture on the other. It is also a form of chalcedony.

Our vender called these beads 'Ocea Jasper' and we discovered they are very popular and fairly recent at the Gem shows like Tucson (2000).  It is an “orbicular” jasper found in Madagascar. It is also a rhyolite and is unique among jaspers as some stones are more translucent than opaque.  (google for more info)

Job 12:8 (Tanakh)
  8  Or speak to the earth, it will teach you; The fish of the sea, they will inform you.

CREATURES OF GOD
GOD SPOKE - THE EARTH RESPONDED
Think of all the treasures that still sleep beneath the crust of the earth - all coming from the word of God - he spoke and the earth responded to his word. They are his creatures. The same God word that created the Word, Jesus! The same God who created each of us. And all his creatures, his created, sing praise God's promise. We thank God for His glory and His word which is true.

LUKE.19:39-40
 39  Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples.”  40  He said in reply, “I tell you, if they keep silent, the stones will cry out!”

ONE STONE AT A TIME
We picture the desert fathers using these pebbles, but unlike ours, their counting stones were probably unstrung and kept in a leather pouch!  But you will also see more elegant, faceted stones that reveal their individual and inner beauty. Ever changing selections, most are limited editions, when gone, unable to replace.

WOOD  & OCEAN JASPER
AVE BEADS:  10 mm Greywood make up the Ave bead in this series. A beautiful compliment to the Pater Beads shown here.   PATER BEAD: Ocean Jasper, also mentioned above is a category unto itself.  The variations are amazing! So they take on names either from their source or their 'picture' appearance so many names overlap. Because it is a natural stone, it will vary from bead to bead. Note the tiny creatures who left their signatures all through these stones ... their richness does not show uless held in the hand under natural light ...

 Jasper is one of the 12 gems set into the foundations of the city walls of Jerusalem, and is considered a highly protective stone by ancients.

 SIRACH 43:10-12
A weapon against the flood waters stored on high, lighting up the firmament by its brilliance, 11 Behold the rainbow! Then bless its Maker, for majestic indeed is its splendor; 12 It spans the heavens with its glory, this bow bent by the mighty hand of God.
